ENG3180 Comedy and Tragedy in Drama
Credit Points: 15

Students test a range of critical and theoretical approaches in their analyses of a range of plays that have long enraptured audiences, inspired film directors and turned actors into super stars of the stage and screen. The unit studies comedies and tragedies in their literary and historical contexts as well as in those of their film adaptations. It examines ways of approaching dramatic literature and emphasises the particular importance of understanding the text through considering the culture of its time of composition as well as that of its time of reinvention through film adaptations.
